Marco’s unconditional love for Star and why it is still amazing

TomStar is really cute and I really fell for it at first, I was confused wondering if I still love Starco anymore. Then I re-watched the two previous seasons. 

The amount of care Marco has given to Star is really something, from worried about her during the Blood Moon Ball to the point where he goes down to get her himself, to giving his 100% trust to her at everything such as Baby’s test and riding a bike.

Then, printing a bunch of flyers looking everywhere tirelessly for Star to the police station when she went missing. Understanding the way Star works at playing a game(changing the rules) and allowing her to do so, proceed to get Tom to understand it as well. There’s also the time he wanted to show Star the Old Youthful because he wanted her to see something amazing. During the two seasons, Marco has been noticeably teaching Star how to become a better person.

In the Season 3, Marco realized his feelings for Star. His love and care grew even stronger. When Star tried to contain her sleep-portal ability, Marco guards her as she sleep without any complain, not because he is a squire but is 100% willing to do it. As much as he wanted adventures with Heckapoo, he wishes to protect Star more than anything. When Star went off missing during sleep-portaling, he panics and used the wand even though he knows the risk.

Marco didn’t give up caring for Star even after acknowledging the fact that she’s with Tom now. THAT is true love. 

Starco isn’t dead, it’s been there the whole three seasons. You just need to see it.

the fashion runs in my family

yesterday I was at gamestop and a man in full Data cosplay walked up to the front counter and I did a double take so hard I nearly broke my neck. So, he walks up and the cashier just casually smiles and goes “How’s it going, Data? What can I do for you?”  and Data goes, “I am doing quite well. I was just wondering when you guys would have Destiny 2 in stock.” This mans……literally did not smile or emote at all. He went all in. The cashier was totally non fazed. I, however, was completely shitting my pants cos ya’ll DO NOT understand how good this dude’s cosplay was. It really looked like fuckin data teleported into the middle of game stop in rural ohio to ask about motherfucking destiny 2.

The only time he broke character was when I was stealthily trying to stare at him and thinking about asking for a pic when he was walking out.This dude. Looked at me, completely expressionless. and WINKED at me. Someone collect ya mans he wildin lmfao

Fanfiction authors are people who write as a hobby. They’re not paid, they do it on their own time, and they do it for fun. Some authors use fanfiction as a way to improve their writing, but unless they ask for critiquing comments, don’t be that person - even if you have good intentions. You don’t see the damage that you do, but damage is done.

The best way to encourage fanfiction authors to keep doing what they’re doing is to let them know what you liked about their work. I’ve seen too many fic authors get discouraged in their writing because of people who leave less than favorable comments on their work. Leave the critical comments for people who get paid to write. 

Again, I’m not asking you to lie to spare the authors feelings, I’m asking you to just refrain from leaving a negative comment.
